This program aims to address various aspects of integrability and its role in the advancement of Mathematics, Mathematical Physics, Condensed Matter Physics and Statistical Mechanics. The scope of the proposed program is therefore highly interdisciplinary, being aimed at mathematicians and physicists who are working on different aspects of integrability. The purpose is to bring together experienced as well as young scientists, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are working on various aspect of quantum as well as classical systems in which integrability plays a paramount role.

July 16 - July 27 (First Division: Integrable systems in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics)
July 30 - Aug 10 (Second Division: Integrable systems in Condensed Matter / Statistical Physics)

The above two divisions are only made just as a broad reference for gathering like-minded mathematicians and physicists. But, we aim to strongly encourage cross-disciplinary discussions throughout the 4 week program under the common theme of integrability.

During the first two weeks of the program, there is also a parallel meeting Quantum Fields, Geometry and Representation Theory and we expect fruitful interactions.

Topics to be discussed under the division of Mathematics and Mathematical Physics include (but not restricted to):

  1. Constant Mean Curvature Surfaces (classical and discrete) and their Relation to Integrable Systems
  2. Integrable systems and geometric asymptotics
  3. Quantum Integrable Systems
  4. Analytical methods for partial differential equations (PDEs) inspired by integrable systems
  5. Applications of integrable PDEs in mathematical physics (for e.g, Benjamin-Ono, Nonlinear Schrodinger, Korteweg–de Vries equations)

Topics to be discussed under the division of Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics include (but not restricted to):

  1. Nonequilibrium dynamics and transport: Integrability to many-body localization
  2. Perturbed conformal and integrable field theories with applications to low dimensional strongly correlated systems
  3. Bethe ansatz and applications to spin chains
  4. Hydrodynamics and collective behavior of many body systems
  5. Calogero, Lieb -Liniger, Yang-Gaudin models and their applications
